On May 19th 2008, the Denali Vikings touched down on the Kahiltna Glacier in the Alaska Range. For the next 23 days the snow, ice and rock that is Denali would be our home.

Three Swedes and two Americans set out to climb the highest mountain in North America. We brought optimism, lots of good food and two great guides. As opposed to us, one of them even looked like a proper viking.

This is our story.
